Seeded Plain is Bryan Day (Decorah, Iowa) and Jay Kreimer (Lincoln, Nebraska), two experimental instrument makers who have been performing with new and unusual sounds on instruments made from everyday objects and materials. Their Entry Codes CD on Creative Sources (Portugal) was described as “playfully cranky and enjoyable…well worth the listen.” See their March 2011 Mini-Tour schedule here.

Also on the bill:

  • Aaron Zarzutski + Nick Hoffman
    Their LP “PSYCHOPHAGI” on Pilgrim Talk was made using disassembled turntable, sewing machine, and amplified sheet metal.
  • Pelzwik
    Duo from Minneapolis, (Birthday Set with: Dinger/Talking Computron ) “…noisy drone stuff on modified toys with some melodic elements. Probably more accessible than anything anyone else is doing…” http://www.myspace.com/pelzwik
